You're right, this is original sounding HC. I never heard of this band before and it's good. This record was one of it's few bright spots in the declining HC year of '87.

Hi there, I'm Ronny from Eindhoven. I've played a few years in Afflict, after they recorded Necromance. Before that I liked them just like you because of the original sound. So when they asked me to play (guitar) with them, I was very pleased. If you want to have any more information about Afflict or any other punk/hc bands from the 80's, maybe I can help. Let me know! greetings from Eindhoven RockCity

3x live gezien Afflict, zowel met de oude als de nieuwe gitarist. Die oude snoof teveel dus die hebben ze eruit gepleurt.

Necromance heb 'm nog op vinyl. Ga 'm straks ff downen, heb ik 'm gelijk digitaal.

Ik kwam net in Eindhoven wonen, vlak na hun concert met Inferno. Heb hun verder nooit zien spelen (in de Bunker of Burgers). Heb wel de Thrashold/Threshold compilaties met 1 van hun nummers ...

In mijn jonge jaren op het brommertje alle optredens van The Afflict afgegaan. Zelfs nog in bezit van de vinyl. Meel gooien tijdens een concert in een of ander durp kan ik me ook nog herinneren.
